The Chloe Duyck Memorial Fund Company Profile

After los­ing their daugh­ter, Chloe, to a con­gen­i­tal heart defect (HLHS), the Duy­cks looked for an orga­ni­za­tion that focused on children’s heart defect research. While they found won­der­ful sup­port groups, they knew that med­ical research would ulti­mately help save lives and improve out­comes. After con­sult­ing med­ical pro­fes­sion­als and research­ing options, they could not find an orga­ni­za­tion that focused solely on pedi­atric heart research and it was sug­gested that a fund be cre­ated. The Duy­cks part­nered up with the Car­diopul­monary Research Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy Insti­tute (CRSTI) to cre­ate The Chloe Duyck Memo­r­ial Fund. Funds would be ear­marked for research and aware­ness in the area of pedi­atric con­gen­i­tal heart defects. This allowed the Chloe Duyck Memo­r­ial Fund to sup­port research very early on. And, because fund­ing is not used to pay salaries, more fund­ing is made avail­able for these research and aware­ness ini­tia­tives. The par­ent orga­ni­za­tion, CRSTI, has been instru­men­tal in the suc­cess of these efforts as have vol­un­teers and donors.
